Community and Therapeutic Recreation Students Food Drive - 2013

This year, the CTR Club ( undergraduate ) and UGRO Club ( graduate ) held a contest to collect food for two food banks.

Well, the results are in. Technically, UGRO won the Canned Food Drive based on the agreed upon formula. However, everyone would agree that we are ALL winners with this incredible stash of food and money collected. This is by far, the largest amount of food and cash that our department has raised for these food banks.

We agreed that the food and the money would be split between the Urban Ministry Food Bank and the UNCG Food Bank. So, regardless of who won and who lost, everyone should be proud of this wonderfully successful drive. This will help get food to those in need this holiday season.

So, in terms of the contest, here are the numbers:

  • CTR Club collected 843.5 cans !
  • UGRO collected 273.5 cans ! ( technically the winner according to the rules of the contest)
That is a grand total of 1117.00 cans that will be donated to the two food banks !
